GPRC is gearing up to make some noise at the weekend’s volleyball match-up against the Lakeland Rustlers.
Created and implemented in 2015 by the SAIT Trojans Outreach Program, Make Some Noise for Mental Health has grown into an ACAC conference-wide awareness campaign to break stigmas around mental health. By involving student-athletes, Make Some Noise for Mental Health is intended to encourage empathy, understanding and open mindedness while promoting resources and support available on campuses and in their communities.
The award-winning campaign expanded to the 17 ACAC member institutions and 11 communities in 2016 and GPRC is so proud to be a part of this campaign again this year.
This year, the ACAC and Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) Alberta Division are once again excited to team up with RBC as the 2018 Make Some Noise for Mental Health presenting sponsor for the second consecutive year.
RBC has also supported GPRC and our students with the RBC Centre for Wellbeing on our Grande Prairie campus.
The RBC Centre for Student Wellbeing aligns with RBC’s commitment to mental health by providing resources to help students feel welcome, valued, confident, safe, and heard.
Resources through the Centre for Student Wellbeing such as the Peer Counselling Program, the Student Ambassador Program and the Elder in Residence Program are actively assisting students with issues that directly relate to their mental health and wellbeing. These resources are readily accessible free of charge on the Grande Prairie campus, and are continuously being evaluated and modified to ensure their continued effectiveness.
We are part of a community that cares, and this week in support of the #MakeSomeNoise for #MentalHealth our GPRC Wolves athletes will be howling for mental health awareness.
Join us in the GPRC gym and howl with the pack.
